May 2020: We are still serving retreatants in a limited capacity to allow for time and cleaning in between a hermitage’s usage.

Guests can reserve a hermitage for a minimum of 2 nights (special weekly rates available). Call or text 636-475-3697 from 10 am – 2 pm or click on “Request a Reservation” in the above menu. Come visit our holy oasis! Be refreshed and refocus on Christ’s heart during this difficult time.

*Donations for walking our grounds are welcome but not required

We also ask guests to maintain appropriate space from one another.

We are a bit more limited with time constraints and need to wait at least 24 hours in between the usage of a hermitage to try to ensure greater safety for our guests. We have set up some new criteria, but we are not a hospital or hotel. We still ask guests if they are willing to clean their hermitage and pray for the next person when they depart. Staff then go in 24 hours later and disinfect with bleach water. We do the best we can and you may choose to come here at your discretion.

We ask if you are willing to follow some new policies in place to try to ensure the safety of all those who visit our solitude.
